It is not very often that we can report on a satisfactory outcome to an outbreak of the ‘muslim menace’, but when Adrian Cartwright and family were kicked out of a cab because the Muslim driver didn’t like the sight of a sacrilegious bottle of wine in his taxi, he complained to the taxi company.

Lo and behold, the owner of the taxi company, himself a Muslim, sacked the driver within thirty minutes of being informed, and apologised to the Cartwright family.

‘As taxi drivers, we cannot be moral policemen. If I picked a customer up from a pub, should I ask him if he has been drinking? Of course not.

What a refreshing point of view!

    Maybe, just maybe, there is still some light left, at the end of that tunnel?

  2. Free enterprise promotes tolerance. To the owner we are all potential customers deserving of respect. Let the driver set up his own company excluding drinkers, gays and women in high heels. We’ll see if he can survive on that.

  3. Good for the owner.

    But an altruistic act?

    Maybe not.

    I believe he might have been motivated by the fact that if the Cartwright family brought the matter before the government “taxi control board” he might have been heavily fined or his licence revoked.

    Possibly even a civil suit based on “Racism” might have been in the cards…….or is “racism” a ONE-WAY street?
